In other sources, the release date for Humpty Dumpty Circus is normally listed as 1898. The IMDb entry is the only one which asserts 1908. Smith and Blackton were making much more sophisticated stop-motion films by 1908, so that makes the 1898 date more plausible.
There seem to be no existing prints of the film, and non-internet references are not available.
Until someone can find more definite references about the film, the release date remains a mystery. One wonders where Guiness Book of World Records got their information about the content of the film (they go with the 1898 date).
